Friday Wrapup!

It's chilly! I'm happy! It's Friday! Let's get to it.


Speaking of chilly, it's been in the 30's at night, which makes me endlessly blissful, and to celebrate that bliss, I open the bedroom windows to let the cold air in. However, CB sometimes then gets pneumonia and wonders why he wants to marry me. But until he complains, I open the windows and lay there happily while he bundles up with several layers and a down comforter.

Anyway, earlier this week I had a really disturbing nightmare that bolted me awake in the middle of the night. CB was stirring himself, so I whispered "I just had a really scary nightmare."

And then this conversation happened.

CB: "Oh no, you did?"
Me: "Yeah, it was really freaky."
CB: "I just had a nightmare myself."
Me: "Wow, really?"
CB: "Yeah, I was dreaming that it was freezing....and then I woke up and realized that it's just my reality."

What a comedian.


If you are cold, dark, and dead inside, skip this video. If you have a soul, watch it.

Also, do you think that CB will let us go as Mei Lun and Mei Huan for Halloween? We'd be a hit.


So, this week's book is one that I just finished reading after it sat on my shelf for years. Courtney will say "I told you so" because she promised me I'd like it and I fought her on it because sometimes I like to be difficult. Just like when she assured me I'd like "How I Met Your Mother" and I was like "I'm never watching it." And then started watching it three seasons in and was like "Why didn't you tell me about this before?" Which she wasn't at all annoyed by.

But whatever, she also told me I "had" to read Twilight (I did not), watch "Scrubs" (I did not), and listen to the Andrew Sisters (she's one billion years old).

Anyway, "I Feel Bad About My Neck," by Nora Ephron, was worth the wait. It was funny, short, and one hundred percent Nora Ephron. If you're a fan - or a woman over 30 - you'll likely laugh out loud at least once, and probably feel a little bit embarrassed when she so accurately verbalizes all of the stuff we internalize about ourselves on a daily basis.

Click here to check it out for yourself and peruse the site for other great reads! It's getting cold out...time for a good book!

(um, speaking of good books, Tori Spelling just came out with a new one - SPOILER ALERT - I just ordered it off of Amazon and so look for it on the book blog in mid-November. You're welcome.)

A huge THANK YOU to those of you who donated to the Lupus Walk last week. You guys rock.


And now, the Video of the Week. I chose this because I like it. That is all.

Happy Friday, everyone! Bundle up!
